... intentionally walk a player in rookie league?
I was reading about Crawford's game in the Gulf Coast League when he was 0-for-3 and was intentionally walked.
It's frikkin' rookie league. It's not about winning and losing, it's about teaching. I don't care what the situation is -- pitch to the hitter.
Makes no sense at all.
